A 27-year-old youth counselor faces multiple sexual assault charges related to an incident at a San Jose high school, California police said.
Silvio Yoc-Aguilar of San Jose worked as a councillor with New Hope for Youth at Hubbard High School, city police said in a Monday, Dec. 5, news release.
The girl told police Nov. 28 that Yoc-Aguilar had “inappropriate sexual contact” with her in a classroom at the school, according to the release.
Officers arrested him the next day at his San Jose home on a warrant, police said.
“Detectives believe there may be additional victims due to the suspect’s position as a trustee at the school,” police said in a news release.
Don Sweeney was a newspaper reporter and editor in California for over 25 years. He has been a real-time reporter for The Sacramento Bee since 2016.
